Apple triples the number of Mac OS X machines in use in the last 3 years and you think they're doing something wrong. You think that a thing is only worth the sum of its parts. You think that the value add of software and support when purchasing a Mac shouldn't be allowed to figure into the overall price of a Mac. Thinking that the enterprise drives the entire computer market is like thinking that wall street drives the entire economy. Oh, you can *believe* it does, but only at your own peril.

See, though, one of the stupidest arguments that people used to make was that gay people could already get married, it's just that they would have to marry someone of the opposite sex "like the rest of us!" they'd say. I prefer calling it same-sex marriage instead of 'gay marriage' because 'same-sex marriage' is more precise. Why does that added precision matter? Because once same-sex marriage is legal, you see, even *straight* people will have the added right to marry people of the same sex! So really, Prop 8 was expanding the rights of everyone, gay and straight.

I was protected from the more graphic scenes. Oh, you poor little punkin! Are you really that fragile that you can't watch two men together? We gay men must be more "real men" than you are, since we can sit through male-female contact without wretching and freaking out and thinking we need to be "protected" from such "graphic scenes". I feel sorry for you.
